Doors 7.30pm | Tickets £16.50 | Theatre

Nominated for ‘Best Band’ at the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, The Rheingans Sisters are one of the most visionary acts on the British folk scene today.

Rowan and Anna Rheingans’ spellbinding vision of traditional English folk music is a perfect blend of instrumental prowess, poignant songwriting, and playful innovation. Their unique and adventurous sonic landscape draws inspiration from native English and European traditions, resulting in an arresting tapestry of fiddles, voices, banjo, bansitar, tambourin à cordes, poetry and percussion that give a contemporary voice to an ancient art.

Winners of the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for ‘Best Original Track’, The Rheingans Sisters are masters of storytelling. Each unique piece transports the audience to new worlds – so join us at the Brewery for an intimate Friday night of captivating harmonies, rich textures, and songs that feel both ancient and wholly new.

A unique and unmissable act live, Rowan and Anna play a plethora of instruments on stage, many of them handmade by their luthier father Helmut Rheingans who is based in their native Peak District home.

If their music is new to you, they could be filed somewhere between the Incredible String Band, the Unthanks, Pentangle and Nancy Kerr.

“Scandi-noir, but tinged with joy and avant-garde trad.” Songlines
